Our prenatal fitness classes focus on deep core training to improve posture and stability, preparing your body for the baby’s weight. Flexibility, low impact cardio and resistance training will increase your strength and endurance for your pregnancy, labor and beyond. Relaxation techniques will also give you the power to control anxiety and be ready for every new experience. While we do not focus on weight control, our programs are developed in order to maintain healthy weight gain during pregnancy.
Private training available. Contact us for information on group sessions as they are not always in session..
Our postnatal training focuses on individual needs. If, for instance, some thinning of the tissue in the abdominal wall, prolapse or pelvic floor weakening has occurred, we begin with rehabilitation exercises to help strengthen the transversus abdominus and pelvic floor muscles. Strengthening the stability of the deep core while promoting elasticity and relaxation methods can greatly speed up the healing process.
We will also.tackle excess baby weight with high intensity intervals, sprints and moderate resistance training.
If you are recovering from a C section, we have a carefully developed program that can begin once you are ready to move about and are cleared by your doctor to exercise. Contact us once you have returned home from the hospital and we can even send you a starter program that is very low impact and simply designed to maintain some mobility and minimize muscle atrophy as you recover and let the stitches heal.
We will also strengthen loose joints and ligaments and work on reconnecting with the pelvic floor to counterbalance any postpartum complications
Private and semi private training is available.
